2019 International Arbitration Survey: International Construction Disputes

We are pleased to partner with Pinsent Masons LLP to conduct our 2019 International Arbitration Survey on international construction disputes. This is the ninth major empirical International Arbitration survey conducted by the School of International Arbitration at Queen Mary University of London.

The Survey considers international construction disputes in detail. Looking at how disputes are resolved before arbitration, what leads to arbitration and how construction disputes are arbitrated. The Survey aims to identify the causes of inefficiency in resolving international construction disputes, suggest practical steps forward, and challenge perceptions.

The Survey aims to research the sentiment of the international construction arbitration community. All stakeholders are invited to share their perspectives, regardless of whether their experience with international arbitration is based on activities as a private practitioner, in-house counsel, arbitrator, academic, or through work for an arbitral institution.

Take the survey

The closing date for responses to this questionnaire is Friday 26 July 2019. Results will be published in Autumn/Winter 2019.

We are grateful for your participation and look forward to the survey’s outcomes. Since the results will benefit from a wide pool of respondents, please feel free to forward this questionnaire to any other potentially interested respondents.


In addition to the questionnaire phase of the survey, we will seek to conduct individual interviews with a selection of willing respondents from June to July 2019. If you would prefer solely to provide an interview rather than complete the questionnaire first, please contact Alexander Ferguson.


Your participation in this questionnaire will be kept entirely confidential. Your name and the name of your organisation will not appear on any materials connected with the survey. The information gathered by the questionnaire will be stored securely by Queen Mary University of London and used only for the purposes of the current survey and any subsequent surveys.
